Aircraft Engine Controls B-935

This book covers the design of engine control and monitoring systems for both turbofan and turboshaft engines, focusing on four key topics:

  • Modeling of engine dynamics
  • Application of specific control design methods to gas turbine engines
  • Advanced control concepts
  • Engine condition monitoring
  • Although principally concerned with aircraft engines, this book is applicable to all air, land, and sea-based gas turbines, since most of the issues in designing other gas turbine control systems will be subsumed within the substantial challenges inherent in designing aviation gas turbine control systems.

    This book is not only a comprehensive resource for understanding the design of modern turbine engine control and monitoring systems, it can also be used as a reference for engineers and researchers designing control and monitoring systems for other industrial equipment and systems.

    The book is based on a course on gas turbine engine controls developed and taught by Dr. Jaw and Dr. Mattingly during 2005–2007 to Air Force, Navy, and Army engineers.
